Base - Space Hulk using Computer Circuit Board - Part 2

After looking at the base for a bit more I felt that I wanted to have some 'metal' showing through. I thought about just giving it a drybrush with Boltgun Metal which would give me the edge highlight I was after but then not the metal 'undertone' I wanted.

At this point I decided to start over and use a metal colour for the base instead of the dark brown.

Next a wash of 50/50 black and brown.

Followed by my custom 'Verdigris' wash.

Now you can see the metal showing through.

To finish off I used mt custom 'Rust' wash and all done!

I don't know how much different it would have turned out if I had just drybrushed the previous incantation but the metal is showing through and I think the result is better overall.



  1. It's nice, but if you could cut it round to fit the shape of the base it would be even better.
